Subject[RFC] ptrace: add generic SET_SYSCALL request
Date
This patch adds a new generic ptrace request, PTRACE_SET_SYSCALL.
It can be used to change a system call number as follows:
ret = ptrace(pid, PTRACE_SET_SYSCALL, null, new_syscall_no);
'new_syscall_no' can be -1 to skip this system call, you need to modify
a register's value, in arch-specific way, as return value though.

Please note that we can't define PTRACE_SET_SYSCALL macro in
uapi/linux/ptrace.h partly because its value on arm, 23, is used as another
request on sparc.

This patch also contains an example of change on arch side, arm.
Only syscall_set_nr() is required to be defined in asm/syscall.h.

Currently only arm has this request, while arm64 would also have it
once my patch series of seccomp for arm64 is merged. It will also be
usable for most of other arches.
